PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh’s public safety director has accepted a top job with the Pennsylvania State Police.

Stephen A. Bucar will join the state police in Harrisburg next month as a deputy commissioner.

He has been Pittsburgh’s public safety chief since June 2014, leading the city’s police, fire, paramedic and animal control divisions. Bucar hired a new police chief to replace Nate Harper, who went to federal prison for diverting city money into an illegal slush fund he used for personal expenses.

The 55-year-old Bucar worked for the state police early in his career, then had a long career in the FBI. He tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1JeN10e ) his new job is closer to his home in eastern Pennsylvania.

It also comes with a raise of nearly $30,000. He will make about $154,000 with the state police.
